5N with Nikkor 70-200G 2.8 ED sample
Sep 29, 2011

Have not found a good reason to use the NEX with the relatively huge Nikkor 2.8 ED lens until yesterday. I have both incredibly sharp 28-70G and 70-200G which haven't seen much action since the NEX and legacy lens adapters were introduced.

In my opinion the NEX 5 sensor is better than the Nikon D90 but not enough to give up the autofocus and other features with the large Nikkor lens.

Clearly the NEX 5N sensor is much superior to the D90 so I decided to give it a try.

This example is straight out of the camera, with the aperture wide open.

For fast moving subjects I would not consider using the NEX with these lens, but when planning to use a tripod with a stationary subject, why not?
